Over the years at No Flying No Tights, we’ve aimed to help library staff creating and maintaining comics collections by providing consistent, library-centric reviews. We’re delighted to offer you monthly reader’s advisory lists!

Our next list is live: Laugh Out Loud

We all need a laugh sometimes. Members of the Features Team have assembled this list of humorous titles to help you find funny books for patrons-or for yourself!  From animal teams to slice of life misadventures to fantastical chaos, we have got a range of titles that will tickle funny bones. 
This monthly series of reader’s advisory and collection development lists are intended to help all of you find and collect the best titles for your collections.  These lists are created and coordinated by our crack team including Features coordinators Martha and Traci, dedicated Feature writer Megan, and editor Mariela.

Keep an eye out for news lists coming at least once a month from here on out at No Flying No Tights.
